Cream Dill Sauce Recipe
Here is a simple cream dill sauce recipe that you can whip up to go with your next fish dinner. Made with crème fraiche and fresh dill weed, it is the perfect accompaniment to poached salmon.
You can make this dill sauce as your fish is cooking, or if you prefer, make it first and keep it warm on very low heat while you concentrate on perfecting your fish.
Be sure to use fresh dill weed to make this sauce. If you really can't find fresh dill, you can use freeze dried dill, but I wouldn't bother with dried. I don't know if you've ever noticed, but dried dill tastes just about like nothing.
As with most of the sauces you'll find on Easy French Food, I have not bothered to strain this dill sauce recipe, so it is a bit clumpy with shallots. If you want to go the extra French mile, you can strain it through a sieve before adding the second part of the fresh dill.
